Floor Protector – So Why Look More Deeply On This Feature..

Spillages, accidents and general wear and tear can all cause damage to flooring during a build project, and can also have a big impact on programme delays and cost. Make sure your construction project reduces this risk by protecting flooring early on in the build process.

With programming and budget considerations factor to any successful construction project, the avoidance of preventable delays is going to be of paramount importance within the achievement of any builds milestones and budget. Central to this particular is ensuring all completed facets of the project are adequately protected from other construction related activities which may certainly be on-going. One prime example is flooring.

Flooring activities inside a build project are more commonly being brought forward to accelerate the build process. As a result, it is vital that when flooring installation is finished, the chosen finish is safe from those activities which still have to be carried out.

Choosing the correct kind of Correx is important which requires both good planning and data of the variety of floor protection products available. The kind of protection will typically depend on what floor or finish requires protection. Conventional flooring such as carpets, vinyl floor, timber, stone and ceramic all have different protection products available.

Other considerations when choosing floor protection include who and what the floor will demand defense against, and exactly how long the protection will likely be needed. Correx is surely an extruded twinwall fluted/corrugated polypropylene sheet and provides efficient solutions to a multitude of applications.

It is favoured by industry because of its lightweight structure and competitive pricing. Correxis ismore durable than corrugated fibreboard, lighter in weight than wood and both chemical and waterproof. Polypropylene kkdcmv is a tough material that stays usable at low temperatures. It provides excellent chemical resistance and good fatigue resistance with really low moisture absorbency. It is possible to thermoform and may be fabricated and welded. It is perfect for cladding applications as it can with stand repeated cleaning.

Another important consideration is if the floor protection would have to be flame retardant. If implementing the building industry’s Joint Code of Practice, chances are that any floor protection product used would need to be flame retardant. Ensuring this really is simple as any flame retardant protection product may have a Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) approval stamp clearly printed.

Whatever floor protection you select to your build project, ensure it is fit for purpose and it should.Correx boards are available in a selection of different thicknesses which range from 2mm to 5mm using the crush strength and impact resistance of the boards increasing with the thickness of the board.

In addition to the standard range, anti-static and flame retardant versions can be found upon request.

Standard – Found in general applications

Flame Retardant – All flame retardant grades have full LPCB accreditation (further facts are available from the Cordek Sales Team).

Anti-Static – A high performance anti-static board for use in particularly sensitive locations like Nuclear Power Stations.
